India has risen as the best source of Australian citizenship, surpassing the UK, with over 118,000 Indian-born migrants promising their loyalty to Australia since 2013-14. Indian migrants have risen as the best source of Australian citizenship by conferral in Australia over the last five years, surpassing the United Kingdom.

Throughout the 05 years between 2013-14 and 2016-17, above 118,000 individuals born in India have promised their loyalty to Australia by becoming citizens of Australia. Indian-born candidates also cover the visa recipients list by nation below Australia’s yearly permanent program of immigration.

Alan Tudge, Former Citizenship minister, announced the nation-wise break up of the statistics of citizenship in the federal parliament prior in this year. Of the 54,419 citizenship appeals allowed as of 28th Feb 2018, Indian migrants created the most significant cohort with 10,168 appeals of the Indian-born immigrants having been accepted. 

10,168 - India
9,195   - United Kingdom
2,617   - South Africa
2,399   - Philippines.
1,996   - Australia
1,962   - Sri Lanka
1,731   - Republic of Ireland
1,559   - Peoples Republic of China
1,200   - South Korea
1,193   - Malaysia
20,399 - Other countries

In the year 2016-17, above 22,000 Indians promised their loyalty to Australia, meanwhile 19,617 individuals from the U.K became citizens of Australia. 

Citizenship of Australia Conferrals Lowest in 15 Years

Nevertheless, the citizenship of Australia conferrals number has fallen a 15-year less in 2017-18 with below 81,000 migrants getting the citizenship of Australia by conferral - the weakest since 2002-03. 

As per the Home Affairs Department, approximately 245,000 appeals were expecting to process at the end of June in the current year and the global processing time for citizenship of Australia by conferral is now within 17 and 19 months.

The Department blames the lag in processing to an improved focus on sincerity and community safety, a rise in demand for Australian citizenship and an improvement in the cases number demanding complex identity evaluation.
